@Atoptech Responds to Recent Court Ruling in #Copyright Case -- #SemiEDA #legal
SANTA CLARA, California, December 29, 2016 – ATopTech, Inc. announced today that a December 21, 2016 court ruling applies narrowly to older versions of its Aprisa software and does not affect newer or future versions of the popular place-and-route engine. In the ruling, the Federal Court in San Francisco, Calif. enjoined ATopTech from using a certain set of input command terms and report formats that existed in versions of its Aprisa software. These formats were the subject of a copyright trial in March, 2016. The specific set of command terms and formats that were at issue in the copyright trial no longer exist in versions of Aprisa released after version 15.10 (first released in Oct. 2015).
